Sly Stone, the frontman for Sly and the Family Stone, has announced his plans to publish a memoir.

"Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)" is set to drop on October 17 via Auwa Books and White Rabbit Books in the United Kingdom.

The book will include a foreword from Questlove and was written with Ben Greenman, who has previously written memoirs with George Clinton and Brian Wilson.

"For as long as I can remember folks have been asking me to tell my story, I wasn't ready," Stone said in a statement. "I had to be in a new frame of mind to become Sylvester Stewart again to tell the true story of Sly Stone. It's been a wild ride and hopefully my fans enjoy it too."

Born Sylvester Stewart, Stone's music career began when he was a child, singing in a gospel quartet with his siblings.

Sly and the Family Stone was an American funk rock band that were active from 1966 to 1983. Its core line-up was led by singer-songwriter, record producer, and multi-instrumentalist Sly Stone, and included Stone's brother and singer/guitarist Freddie Stone, sister and singer/keyboardist Rose Stone, trumpeter Cynthia Robinson, drummer Greg Errico, saxophonist Jerry Martini, and bassist Larry Graham.

They released a series of Top 10 Billboard Hot 100 hits such as "Dance to the Music" (1968), "Everyday People" (1968), and "Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)" (1969), as well as critically acclaimed albums such as Stand! (1969).
